Timeless Pineapple

I love pineapple!!! And when I was pregnant, I would eat a whole one a week! My poor child is just now liking the taste of it! LOL! The Tropical Oasis suite has been a favorite of mine! I have made at least 5 cards using all the goodies! This was one of the first ones I made! I was curious about the dies that cut out the prickly outer layer of the pineapple along with the leaves on top! I decided that Copper Foil was a close match to an actual pineapple outside layer. Once I cut it out, I just kept on going making this card! It was a quick design! I love it when the creative mojo just flows!

I then cut out a small piece of So Saffron cardstock to adhere behind the prickly die shape. Then, I used Mossy Meadow cardstock to cut out the leaves for the top of the pineapple. Next I wanted to create a frame, so I whipped out my Stitched Rectangle dies and measured them against the card base. The Tropical Oasis has a gorgeous rattan looking piece that was perfect for the framed image!

I ran the card base through the die cutting machine with the Subtle 3-D folder to make the Mint Macaron have texture. The sentiment was stamped with Early Espresso, anchored with Champagne Basic Jewels (those need to be a regular item!!!!), and I used the Stitched So Sweetly dies to cut it out. I finished off the card with some frayed Linen Thread topped with the Hibiscus flower from the Tropical Oasis Trinkets.

I hope you enjoyed this card as much as I did making it!

Black Ice Technique

watermarked1(2018-09-07-1302)

Every month I hold stamp club where the girls get to make 3 projects, with one card that is a technique.  I was blessed to have completed all my techniques for the rest of this year!  This month I found this awesome and popular Black Ice technique!

It’s so simple to make too!  Just follow the instructions below:

  1. Stamp your image onto Silver Foil paper with StazOn Black.
  2. Take the StazOn and then drag up and down, and side to side. You just want some random streaks of black. The StazOn works best to prevent smearing.
  3. Let it dry for a minute or two.  Then take VersaMark and drag up and down & side to side.
  4. Sprinkle Clear Embossing Powder on the whole thing and tap off excess.
  5. Heat set the whole piece.  It takes a little longer than the metallic embossing powders.  The image will appear very crisp and deep black.  Plus the Silver will really pop!

We used the hostess set Very Vintage for this card.  We randomly stamped the vintage doily with Smoky Slate for a background.  Then we ran the Basic Gray piece through the Big Shot using the Subtle Embossing Folder.  Finished it with a sentiment and some ribbon in the back.
